Default Compare and Contrast

Morning all,
Can you please help me out here with two photos I have posted.
Firstly
http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/South_America/Ecuador/photo134902.htm
Which is a landscape shot from the Galapagos, and secondly
http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/South_America/Ecuador/photo137468.htm
Which is a different framing of the same shot.

Ignoring the size issue if you can, I'd appreciate your comments on the two different framings. Please note that I'm not fishing for points here, jsut asking for comments, either on the photos themselves or here in the discussion forum.

Cheers
Nick

Hello Nick!

I prefer http://www.trekearth.com/gallery/South_America/Ecuador/photo134902.htm.

As for me on the second one brown foreground is too big...

Thanks for looking. I'm still unsure myself, but I'm erring towards the 2nd one.

I much prefer the portrait one (137468), but then if you look at my pictures you'll find a have a strong preference for "portrait" landscapes ;)

I prefer the vibrancy of the colours in the smaller one though...

Portrait one got my vote, leading lines are much better. The landscape version is good but the foreground path tends to zip my eyes rightout of the righthand side :D.

I also prefer the portrait version, perhaps it could have even more space to the left/below. Yes, take a look at that one of Adrian's - you'll know the one when you see it... (from New Zealand)

It's funny Greg, that was my first thought as soon as I saw the portrait version :)

I also would like the first one. Both have perfect colors. But in the second one, the foreground brown area is very large and kills the background scenery, the colors (especially the water's)and the sharpness. Last thing, size matters in landscape photography. Anyway, both of them are perfect. Congrats...

Heh, they do seem similar, but I'd obviously not seen yours when I took mine. ;o)
